University Orthopaedic Associates will be closed on Monday, May 27th in observance of Memorial Day


At University Orthopaedic Associates (UOA), our award-winning surgeons, Dr. Gino Chiappetta, Dr. Matthew McDonnell and Dr. Ravi Verma, have comprehensive training and expertise in diagnosing and treating spinal conditions. Whenever possible, they use the most minimally invasive surgical procedures. Minimally invasive spine surgery uses leading-edge technology to treat spinal conditions or injuries in a way that requires the least amount of manipulation and impact. This reduces surgical times, improves post-surgical pain and helps you recover faster.

Trauma, sports injuries, aging or normal wear and tear are a few factors that can lead to conditions that adversely affect the structure of the spine or damage the vertebrae and surrounding tissue. Spinal conditions can be painful, and they can significantly limit your quality of life. UOA offers safe and effective treatment for a number of spinal conditions and injuries, including the following:
